   Madison with her FIRST Ribbon!! And her share of Championships and Reserve Championships! Maddison has ridden with me for one year and has begun to overcome a great fear of riding from a previous fall. She is currently trotting and cantering small courses! Congratulations Maddison!!
  Izzy has a soft quiet nature with the ponies. Ballet is Izzy's first love, I believe horses are her second! Shown here with Skittles just hours after his arrival and schooling a sales pony.

Olivia started riding with me when she was just a tiny 5 year old & she was a STAR from the beginning. Her first show she won 7 blue ribbons & the Year End Championship. That was just the beginning, every thing she touched was Champion or Reserve from that day on!! Such a lovely focused, dedicated & talented child, hands down one of the best riders I have taught! Shown here with just a few of the many horses & ponies she rode.
